Yukon

Yukon is my first dog (as an adult) and I couldn’t have asked for a more special buddy. I adopted him from the local Humane Society in March of 2007 as an 8 month old gangly, goofy pup and he’s been my heart dog ever since. He might be just a plain black dog but he is bursting with personality and is just plain fun. He lives for frisbee, food and swimming!

Mira

Mira is a nutty little Australian Shepherd that spent the first couple years of her life locked in a barn stall. I guess her original family didn’t research the breed as they locked her up because she was herding the neighbor’s horses (really, who’d have thunk it – a herding dog…herding). I adopted her in December of 2007 – she was a shell of a dog, scared of a lot of things. She still has a number of hangups but she’s now an insanely hyper dog, full of personality and impossible to keep up with. She keeps us all very busy, life would be quite dull without her! She has an intense obsession with all things round and can be found obsessively herding all of us around the house.

Me

Oh gosh, now for me…I’m a stubborn independent girl (err…woman, I guess I am 39) raised in rural Michigan. By day I’m a lab nerd, working in a mid-size hospital – as a  Microbiologist. By night (and weekend and time off), I’m a photography loving, motorcycling riding, outdoor junky with perpetually itchy feet.

Yesterday was a Surf N Turf kind of day.  Turkey hunting in the morning, bluegill fishing in the afternoon.  First time out with the new @cabelas CGR 3 weight-what a hoot! #flyfishing #fishing #bluegill #panfishonthefly #bluegillonthefly #glassisnotdead #michigan Didn't think I'd be able to get out for this turkey season, but made it out this morning.  This Tom came in strutting with another tom and two jakes following a hen.  Talk about getting your heart racing, the hen yelping angrily and the boys behind her gobbling their heads off!  21.5 lbs, 10" beard and 1 1/8" spurs - turkey schnitzel pieces and fried heart for lunch (after bluegill fishing 😉). #turkeyseason #turkeyhunting #wildturkey #michigan #spring #womenhunt #woodstotable #compnchoke #browning Did some last minute packing for the one day I'd get to go turkey hunting this season.  I guess I forgot my hunting boots.  My non-waterproof Salomon trail runners must have attracted the birds in because it was a successful hunt!  My feet are soaked 😂 #turkeyhunting #wildturkey #turkeyseason #michigan #spring #womenhunt #dressforsuccess Finally made time to visit the McConkie Ranch Petroglyphs on this trip.  It's on private property but the owners have kept the rock art accessible to the public as long as they respect the property (small $5 donation, totally worth it). I lost some of my photos from here in the phone drowning but thankfully still have some good examples of the amazing Fremont rock art.  We saved the Three Kings panel located in a different spot on the property for a different trip. #rockart #petroglyphs #fremontculture #utah #vernal #mcconkieranch #roadtrip #dryforkcanyon
